Don't sell that accomplishment cheaply! It was a big deal for me as a side sleeper to finally be able to sleep on the affected side. The best moments of recovery come when we unthinkingly do something that we couldn't do before. I'll never forget the day I left my cane in a shopping basket and left the store, didn't even notice I didn't have it with me.Jacey, elf1, This morning I woke up and I was sleeping on my side, the surgery side and funny enough I didn't have any pain. It's not huge progress but at least it's improvement lol.
